On Monday April 1 at 7 pm, Caretaker Farm, a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm, and Images Cinema, both of Williamstown, are co-sponsoring a free screening and discussion of Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives, a film by best-selling author Jeffrey M. Smith. The film will be followed by a talk and discussion featuring biologist Ed Stockman, M.S., owner of Summit Farm in Plainfield, MA and an organic farmer for 41 years. For the past 13 years, Stockman has been lecturing against genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and their use in food. He is co-founder of the Massachusetts Right to Know GMOs movement.
The film quotes physicians and scientists who say that after two decades the same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock and pets that have been fed genetically-modified foods are now on the rise in the U.S. human population. They assert that when people and animals stop eating such foods, their health improves.
The talk and screening are free; however there is a suggested donation of $5.
